Just like your normal hair, your wig is gonna get dirty. You can generally tell when your wig is in need of a wash, but if you're a bit unsure, some of the characteristics are:
💗 smell (whether it's sweat, smoke etc)
💗 stiff (from product etc)
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
💗 soft wide tooth comb or wet brush
💗 shampoo (we recommend a gentle shampoo, one that is paraben and sulfate free)
💗 spray bottle
💗 fabric softener
💗 wig stand (optional)
Comb through the wig gently to remove any knots using a comb or a wet brush. A more thorough description of this step can be found here.
Fill your bucket/sink with cold water - enough to fully submerge your wig. Tip a small amount of shampoo into the water - enough you would normally use to shampoo your own hair - and lather the water so it becomes soapy.
Place the wig in the water, allow it to soak for 5-10 minutes. Do not scrub the wig while it is wet as it will create knotting, however, the cap of the wig may need a little bit of a light tussle to lather the shampoo to remove any built up sweat, etc.
Hold the hair by the cap and rinse the wig under cold water making sure all the hair is flowing in the same direction. Gently squeeze the wig to remove excess water. Place the wig either on a flat surface over a towel or on a wig stand to dry. Do not comb the wig while it is wet.
As the wig is drying, use a spray bottle with a 50/50 solution of water and fabric softener and lightly spray the wig all over. Gently run your fingers through the strands to disperse the solution.
Once your wig is dry, gently comb through it once more and then she's either ready for storage or to wear!
We hope this helps ❣
